Drawing cartoons empowers teen with mental disorders | Geek Therapy | Scoop.it
Parents of a South Carolina teen with mental disorders help him turn passion for cartoon-drawing into career that will allow him to support himself one day.


Zack suffers from a laundry list of mental health issues, including both intermittent explosive- and obsessive-compulsive disorders, which make him different from other kids his age and threaten to inhibit his ability to function as an independent adult.


Artistic self-expression through drawing helps to balance Zack's struggles. Together, the Hix family is on a journey to turn a series of Zack's characters into a career as a cartoonist.
